I couldn't find a birthday card that I liked for my nephew's 5th birthday so I set about making one. My initial idea was to paint on canvas an image of Stitch and involve the number 5, I found an image of Stitch holding a globe which led to the idea of him holding a big number 5. Having seen 3D letters and numbers that you could paint yourself in Hobbycraft, I decided to merge the 2 thoughts and ended up with a self standing 3D alternative to a birthday card:

Front and back card cutouts

Made 4cm deep with card and double sided tape

Strengthened with papier mache

Painted using acrylic paint

Final detail added using fineliner
